Pier Paolo Capponi (born 9 June 1938) is an Italian actor and screenwriter.

Life and career[edit]

Born in Subiaco,[1] after his studies Capponi attended a theater school and later was chosen by director Vittorio De Seta for an important role in Un uomo a metà.[2] His film career is divided equally between auteur films (with, among others, Paolo e Vittorio Taviani, Valerio Zurlini, Gérard Corbiau, Francesco Rosi and Nelo Risi) and genre films, in which he was sometimes credited as Norman Clark.[2] On the big screen with some regularity for a decade, after 1977 Capponi focused his appearances on TV-series and on stage.[2]
